BlackBerry unveils their version of the iPad On Monday the makers of the BlackBerry introduced a new tablet computer that is set to hit the market in 2011. Research In Motion said at a developer conference that the new tablet, PlayBook, will weigh about .9 pounds and have a 7-inch screen.

Landslide in Mexico causes damage Up to 1,000 people may be trapped by a landslide that occurred on Tuesday in Oaxaca, a state in southern Mexico. The landslide occurred when a hill, about 650 feet wide, collapsed. According to Gov. Ulises Ruiz, about 300 homes were affected and as many as 1,000 people may have been killed. The death count as of Tuesday afternoon was at seven but 100 were confirmed missing. Heavy rain and additional weather conditions are making the rescue efforts challenging.

FDA sends letters to mouthwash makers Johnson & Johnson, CVS and Walgreens received letters from the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday, warning them to stop making “unproved” claims on their mouthwash products. These products claim to be effective in removing plaque or preventing gum disease but the FDA has found that sodium fluoride, the active ingredient contained in all three brand’s mouthwashes, is only effective in preventing cavities. The FDA said in their letter that the companies have 15 days to “take appropriate action.” This letter comes at a bad time for Johnson & Johnson as they were just issued a second Congressional hearing in regards to recalls concerning nine of their non-prescription drugs .

The University of Texas was officially locked down by local authorities Tuesday, after reports of two gunmen on campus were issued.

Shots fired at UT Student opens fire before taking own life By ROBERT CLEMENTS News Intern rclements@smu.edu

The University of Texas locked down around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning in response to a suspect firing several shots before turning the gun on himself. The suspect, UT student Colton Tooley, had entered the campus’ Perry Castaneda Library (PCL). Tooley, a 19-year-old math major, had used his own AK-47. He was pronounced dead on the library’s sixth floor. No injuries or deaths of other UT students, faculty or staff have been reported. Senior Robby Rebb told ABC News, “I was walking from the business school, and a guy sprinted

past me screaming, ‘There’s a guy with a gun.’ I looked up and saw a man in a ski mask, wearing a suit and carrying an assault rifle. And I called 911.” UT closed mid-morning and cancelled all remaining classes for the day. UT freshman Bonnie Tibbs had not yet left for class when the University locked down. “I received a UT text alert at 8:23 a.m. stating there was an armed suspect last seen at the Perry Castaneda Library,” she said. “A second message came shortly after alerting us to take shelter and stay where you are.” At 11 a.m., the campus sirens continued to blare as the SWAT teams searched every building for a second suspect.

“We have reports of a second suspect that was wearing a beanie with a long rifle, wearing blue jeans and a black top that we’re looking for that may or may not be a white male,” Chief of Police Art Acevedo told an Austin radio station. By noon however, the lockdown was lifted as police called off their search for the alleged second suspect. “I feel that the campus has handled the situation very well and students were alerted promptly about the situation. I think universities, such as UT, have learned a lesson from the Virginia Tech shooting three years ago,” Tibbs told The Daily Campus.

U.S. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) will not be receiving a SMU’s Distinguished Alumni Award on Oct. 21. Johnson had to back out of the event because of a scheduling conflict, and therefore, cannot receive the award. SMU Alumni Relations said that honorees are required to be present at the ceremony to receive the award. Dina Craig, media director for Johnson’s office, said Johnson had

to back out because she is recovering from back surgery. “She’s excited about [it], she wants to,” Craig said. “But right now she just can’t.” SMU spokesman Kent Best said Johnson notified SMU that she would be unable to attend the event. Best said she will receive the award at a later date, which is yet to be determined. Craig said the surgery pushed other important events forward and has made it impossible for her to

Reading days to return... in 2012 By MEREDITH SHAMBURGER Senior Staff Writer mshamburge@smu.edu

SMU Student Senate’s quest to get reading days added to the spring 2011 semester and 2011-12 academic year ended Tuesday, when Student Body President Jake Torres explained to senate that the academic calendar was already set in stone. Torres met with the faculty senate committee in charge of the calendar that morning, as he is the student senate representative on the committee. Torres said the committee was “very receptive” to senate’s request, although they could not change the upcoming calendar. However, Torres said the committee did put two fall reading days and one spring reading day into the 2012-13 calendar.

“It’s better than what we have now,” Torres said when directing senators to encourage faculty senate members to approve the calendar. “Hopefully Faculty Senate will pass it,” he said. If Faculty Senate does not approve the calendar, it will go back to the subcommittee. Torres brought 553 signatures on a petition to the meeting with him in an attempt to get reading days back in the academic calendar. The petition was intended to show that the student body supports the inclusion of reading days in each semester. Torres urged senators to get “as many students as you can” to sign the petition.

Student reports sexual assault A crime alert has been issued, warning students with posts on doors around campus By MEREDITH SHAMBURGER Senior Staff Writer mshamburge@smu.edu

SMU issued a crime alert last Thursday after a female student reported that she had been sexually assaulted by an acquaintance on Sept. 19 around 3 a.m. in his residence hall room. SMU police are currently investigating the matter. The student told police that she and her acquaintance, a student, had gone to a party after the previous

night’s football game. They later returned to campus and went to his room, where she was assaulted. Police urge anyone with information about this matter to contact the SMU Police Department at 214-768-3388. Anonymous tips can be made to 214-SMU-2TIP or by going online to smu.edu/2tip.

SMU runningback Zach Line runs the ball past TCU defensive end Braylon Broughton during play last Saturday at Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

By JORDAN JENNINGS Sports Editor jjennings@smu.edu

Sophomore runningback Zach Line has proven himself a consistent standout this season. SMU’s No. 1 runningback is “Lining” up plays left and right. Currently Line averages seven yards per carry. During the season opener in Lubbock, Line rushed 72 yards and scored a touchdown on 12 carries against the Red Raiders. Just a week later, Line rushed 122 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns to lead SMU to a 28-7 victory over UAB. On Sept. 19, Line led the team in rushing yards with a total of 82 on eight carries against Washington State for the win. “I feel like I’m doing my job, it’s nothing extraordinary,” Line said.

“We are all really supportive of each other. If I didn’t have the line or the defense, I wouldn’t be able to perform.” Last weekend, Line tallied up 139 rushing yards on 17 touches and a touchdown against TCU. “I think we are a good team, with great fans,” Line said on the season. “We’ve made some mistakes along the way, but we learn from good teams. Everyone’s doing their job, we make good enough plays to win games.” Line, a Michigan native, joined the Mustangs in January 2009 as a gray shirt. Originally drafted as a linebacker, Line switched to offense as runningback in the spring of 2009. As a freshman, Line started in six games and played in all 13. He scored a total of seven touchdowns

on 49. Line scored two touchdowns against Navy that were the first at SMU by a freshman since 2005. Line finished the season with 189 rushing yards, 10 receptions for 68 yards. This weekend the Mustangs will travel to Houston for a conference game against Rice. “It’s fun to go to somebody else’s house, steal what they want and take it back home,” Line said on the upcoming game. Rice fell to Baylor last weekend and is currently 3-1 on the season. The Mustangs are currently 2-2. “We are looking forward to setting our goal to win the Conference Championship this year,” Line said. The Ponies will return home Oct. 9 to Gerald J. Ford Stadium to play Navy.

UT: SMU SORORITIES: Rules change talks on CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

contact her.” Some women also find that the “no contact” rule affects their ability to study with other women in their classes. Elyse Murphy, a junior active member, also explained some of her difficulties. “If you have a class with a freshman and need to ask her a question about homework or studying, these new rules make it very hard to do that,” she said. Panhellenic has no problem with active members and PNMs studying together on campus, but the “no contact” rule must still apply to phone calls between both parties, no matter the objective. This same issue has affected other organizations on campus as well. April Zinober is the president of Students for a Better Society, which includes members who are PNMs. “Having rules that conflict with the interests of other organizations is not really fair,” the junior sorority woman said. “Cracking down on communication between the freshmen and the actives is not the way to solve the issue,” she said.

Although it will be tougher to contact and coordinate with each other, some women expect the fall semester to be much less stressful for PNMs. “Last year, some girls were feeling very overwhelmed by all the lunches that they were getting invited to,” Murphy said. She gave an example of a PNM who was rushed very hard by three sororities and had one or two lunches almost every day during the fall semester. “Even though she was getting really tired of going to all these lunches, and it was getting in the way of her school work, she felt that if she turned anyone down then it would hurt her chances of getting into a sorority,” Murphy said. “It’s kind of helpful,” PNM Margot O’Daniel said, “[You’re] not stuck doing sorority stuff all the time, and you can focus on other things like school.” Frymark agrees. “It’s important for freshman women to establish their place on campus before thinking about joining a sorority. That’s what recruitment

week is for.” The restrictions may be even more of a blessing for the active members who are recruiting. With so much pressure to meet as many PNMs as possible, “It might take the stress out of [recruitment] because [now] there are limits to what you can do as a sorority woman,” Hogan said. Kristal Statler, the director of Sorority and Fraternity Life, thinks the adjustment has been smooth. “The recruitment chairs for each chapter are really doing a great job with educating their members on the rules in general,” Satler said. “These rules are not for the PNMs, so it is not their responsibility to worry about them.” “The responsibility to follow the rules lies with the chapters and their individual members,” she said. Murphy has a positive outlook on the new guidelines. “It will be interesting to see what happens,” she said, “But overall, I think it is a good thing.”

UT is no stranger to this kind of violence, recalling the 1966 shooting that until the Virginia Tech tragedy was the deadliest campus shooting in American history. The shooter, Charles Joseph Whitman, a UT student and marine, killed 14 and injured 32 others with a rifle from his perch atop UT’s iconic tower. It is now more important than ever for universities to have an effective emergency preparedness plan. Kent Best at SMU’s Public Affairs Office said, “It’s a challenge that every university faces.” “The goal is of course to reach everyone, but sometimes that is not always possible, even if every effort is made,” he said. SMU’s emergency response system is very similar to UT’s. Best praised UT’s response saying, “SMU would do the same thing:

SENATE: issue resolved AWARD: Rep. waits CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

The petition asked the subcommittee on the academic calendar of Faculty Senate, the Provost’s Office and the administration to “reinstate reading days for the benefit of the student body.” Torres noted that many faculty senators were impressed with student senate’s passion about reading days, although they couldn’t fulfill their request. Senate passed a resolution authored by Torres and Lyle senator Joe Gaasbeck two weeks ago that encouraged the university to add two reading days to the spring 2011 semester, as well as all future semesters. The fall 2010 semester has one

reading day scheduled. The spring 2011 semester has no reading days scheduled. Reading days have been the subject of concern for SMU administration in recent years; officials worry that students will go out and drink instead of using them to study for final exams. Senators argue that reading days are crucial for students who are taking challenging courses. They also say reading days ease pressure on teachers who often have multiple exams—including finals— to prepare and grade at the end of the year.

attend because they “just couldn’t coordinate it with SMU.” “The recovery time for her took a lot longer than she expected, and it pushed a lot of stuff back,” Craig said. Craig said Johnson “hasn’t even been to the district” because she was physically incapable due to her recovery. However, Johnson was in the district this past weekend to attend a local church service. “There was a church service acknowledging some community service that she has done,” Craig said.

The Daily Campus has been unable to confirm with the church that she attended the service. Johnson’s name and photo were pulled from the Distinguished Alumni Award website. This comes weeks after a Dallas Morning News report that Johnson had violated Congressional Black Caucus Foundation rules. Johnson had been awarding scholarships to her own relatives and children of her top aide. Johnson repaid those scholarships, however, she told the Dallas Morning News that she did nothing wrong in the first place.

lockdown and encourage those not on campus to stay away.” In the event of an emergency, SMU students have a variety of communication tools available. Building intercoms and the SMU Police would likely be the first lines of communication followed by text, e-mail, phone and web alerts. For concerned parents and relatives, Best advises they check the SMU website. “Our immediate concern is for our students here on campus,” he said. SMU’s alert system is based upon emergency contact information provided to the university by the students. Students can add unlimited numbers, to include their home phone or a parent’s cell number. But the alerts will go out in stages, giving first priority to students’ primary contact information here in Dallas. “This is an effort to avoid overloading the emergency response system,” Best said.

Letter to the Editor Community response to ‘To give or not to give?’ I understand your anxiety when confronted with homeless people panhandling. It is difficult to know what the right thing is to do. But, actually, you can know exactly how your money would be spent at any one of the charities that provide services for the homeless. Look up the 990 that they file with the government. Income and expenses are transparent. Reputable agencies spend less than 25 percent on fundraising. Reputable agencies are audited annually. Go to www. guidestar.com. Giving money directly is a temporary measure that might be spent on drugs and alcohol or on food and lodging. Non-profit agencies that take care of the homeless can offer food, shelter and case management services that can connect the homeless with the resources they need to move forward. I think the choice is evident. Regards, Nancy Swartz Nancy Swartz is a director of development in the non-profit industry. She can be reached for comments or questions at n.swartz@sbcglobal.net.

EDITORIAL

Thoughts from legendary SMU - TCU game A student’s perspective on rivalry, rushing the field and everything in between I honestly thought that if SMU lost the Battle for the Iron Skillet, I would have cited lack of attendance by the student body as the reason of our defeat. However, I was wrong. Very wrong. I have never, ever seen such a great turnout from the SMU student body at any athletic sporting event and the SMU/Greater Dallas Community in my time here at SMU. I honestly felt that I was really experiencing a college game day environment, with the Boulevard packed with members of the SMU community and beyond. The stadium was LOUD. And I mean LOUD. I’d estimate that twothirds of the attendees at Gerald J. Ford Stadium were wearing red. And that’s a good sign. And the best part was I barely saw any student leave during halftime. I know for other games it would be different. But hey, you never know when you’re needed to rush the field! I don’t even know where to begin expressing my thanks to the student body, faculty, staff, administration, and the Dallas/Fort Worth community for making Saturday a memorable day. We broke a stadium attendance record, got national exposure from a telecast on ESPN, and made the Battle for the Iron Skillet relevant again. And it didn’t involve a college football team from the Big 12, SEC, ACC, PAC-10 or an independent (Seriously, why is everyone using DFW as the college football hub of the world?). Yes, we did not win the game. And score may not have reflected it, but our football team is getting even better. There are always mistakes to be learned from, and Conference-USA championship aspirations are ahead of us this season. Yet, I felt great about how our football team was able to keep up with a No. 4 ranked team in the country. Sure it’s TCU, but you have to give credit where credit is due. This doesn’t mean that you still can’t have a friendly but aggressive rivalry. But in any case, one thing I would suggest to whom it may concern in the future: Please update the scoreboard with correct statistics from the correct game. 420 yards in the first quarter? Maybe if I was playing you in Madden 11 (Or NCAA Football 11, if you’re more of an option type of guy). And do not, I repeat, do NOT play music when we are trying to score on a crucial drive. I’m pretty sure the SMU offense would prefer a quieter stadium so our wide receivers, linemen and running backs can hear audibles by the quarterback at the line of scrimmage when needed. But who really knows? Maybe someone should tell a member of Student Senate to write a piece of legislation about it. Joseph Esau is a junior electrical engineering and mathematics double major. He is also the Parliamentarian of the SMU Student Senate. He can be reached for comments or questions at jesau@smu.edu.

Professors express multidisciplinary disappointment about Darwinian event Last Thursday evening, the SMU community witnessed another dishonest attempt to present a particular form of religion as science, entitled “4 Nails in Darwin’s Coffin: New Challenges to Darwinian Evolution.” It was designed and presented by Seattle’s Discovery Institute (and its subsidiary the Biologic Institute). This was a followup to their equally dishonest 2007 presentation “Darwin vs. Design.” We were outraged by the dishonesty of Thursday’s presentation, but not entirely surprised by it. The Discovery Institute is a well-financed organization that has repeatedly attempted to discredit Darwinian biology and thereby advance its brand of religion called intelligent design. We do not object to religion as such. But we do object to blatant distortions of Darwinian thinking, and to pseudo-scientific alternatives to it that are falsely alleged to be better supported by the evidence. The evening began with a slickly-produced movie in the style of a science documentary entitled “Darwin’s Dilemma.” It focused on the supposedly inexplicably-sudden appearance of new phyla of animal forms during the early Cambrian period, about 600 million years ago. There were also other arguments made that alleged that the processes that Darwin described could not explain any significant evolutionary change in any organism at all, let alone those of the “Cambrian Explosion.” The Discovery Institute employees who were interviewed in the movie were present to elaborate on these arguments in person. They suggested that the supposedly glaring inadequacies of Darwinian theory could be remedied if we instead accept the “theory” that a vaguely-described intelligent designer produced life and all of its intricate features. Although a flyer invited attendees to “bring questions,” none were allowed until about three hours into the program,

thirty minutes after its announced ending time! This leads us to doubt that the Discovery Institute sincerely wishes to engage in dialogue or debate. We will also mention that a representative of the Institute, standing in front of a podium with the SMU logo on it, thanked the “SMU administration” for permitting the event, which we took to be a suggestion that it was organized by an academic program of the University. Make no mistake: This is false. The program was not organized by any SMU academic program. Many of the more general arguments presented against Darwinian theory have been around for a number of years, and have been thoroughly demolished by experts. The strong suggestion made in the movie and by the Discovery Institute employees that there is serious doubt in the scientific community about the adequacy of Darwinian theory is completely false. The Discovery Institute is a fringe group of pseudo-scientists who are busily trying to pass themselves off on the unwary as legitimate scientists. We cannot present here a detailed discussion of all of the distortions presented on Thursday evening. We are all seriously disturbed by various particular claims that we believe are false or misleading, and by the fallacious objections presented to Darwinian theory as such. Anyone interested in learning about the fatal flaws in the claims that the Discovery Institute makes about Darwinian thought in general, and the Cambrian Explosion in particular, can find that detailed information at: http://faculty.smu.edu/ jwise/big_problems_with_intelligent_design.htm. The site also has background information on the Discovery Institute. But we wish to state here our firm conviction that Darwinian theory is solidly supported by masses

of evidence, and that it can explain innumerable characteristics of the biological world, from the genetic features of individual organisms to the appearance and disappearance of phyla and other large-scale patterns of biological change. We are fortunate at SMU in having an intelligent student body that places great value on honest intellectual debate and inquiry. As faculty members we are eager to engage in such debate, which we believe advances the cause of truth. We strongly believe that the Discovery Institute is not interested in honest debate, and is not engaged in legitimate scientific enquiry. It is engaged in a concerted effort to distort the truth. Unlike the serious discussions of evolution that occurred here during our “Darwin Year” activities in 2009-10, the event last Thursday was a propaganda exercise. We are troubled to think that some of the people who attended it still might not understand this. Edward Countryman

MAN ON THE STREET

Classes you MUST take before you graduate In the midst of fulfilling our core requirements and trying to decide which classes we should take to prepare ourselves for whatever career lies ahead, we can easily forget that a third of our curriculum is designed for us to explore. With SMU’s class requirements, we have the opportunity to try out those weird, quirky classes that would only be offered by SMU and the ones that would just be helpful for any degree. After talking to a number of upperclassmen experienced in the frenziness of deciding which classes to take, I have come up with a list of the “must have” classes that one should take before graduating (in no particular order): BIOL 1303: Essentials of Biology (with Professor John Wise) BIOL 3354: Parasitology CCJN 2302: Ethics of Convergent Media CCPA 4323: Forensics Workshop ECON 1311: Microeconomics ECON 4351: Labor Economics (with Professor Elizabeth Wheaton) HIST 3301: Human Rights – America’s Dilemma (with Dr. Rick Halperin) HIST 4300: Seminar in Research & Writing – Race, Slavery & Independence (with Professor Edward Countryman) HIST 3355: Class and Gender in Ancient Society (with Dr. Melissa Dowling) HIST 3350: Life in the Medieval World, A.D. 306 to 1095 (with Professor Jeremy Adams) PLSC 4369: Republicanism & The Good Society (with Professor Michael Lusztig) PLSC 4363: Religion and Politics in the Western Tradition (with Professor Matthew Wilson) PLSC 4380: Special Studies in International Relations: Model United Nations PLSC 4369: Civil Liberties (with Professor Joseph Kobylka) PLSC 4321: Civil Rights Pilgrimage (with Professor Dennis Simon) CFA 3303: Human Sexuality WELL 1101: Choices 1 – Concepts Well WELL 2125: Beginners Triathalon (with professor David Bertrand) Any class with Dr. David D. Doyle Of course there are plenty more classes that deserve to be on this list, but we could only name a few. In addition, remember that for most courses, it is not necessarily the subject matter that is taught, but rather the teacher that makes the experience worthwhile.

SMU runningback Zach Line runs the ball past TCU defensive end Braylon Broughton during play last Saturday at Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

By JORDAN JENNINGS Sports Editor jjennings@smu.edu

Sophomore runningback Zach Line has proven himself a consistent standout this season. SMU’s No. 1 runningback is “Lining” up plays left and right. Currently Line averages seven yards per carry. During the season opener in Lubbock, Line rushed 72 yards and scored a touchdown on 12 carries against the Red Raiders. Just a week later, Line rushed 122 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns to lead SMU to a 28-7 victory over UAB. On Sept. 19, Line led the team in rushing yards with a total of 82 on eight carries against Washington State for the win. “I feel like I’m doing my job, it’s nothing extraordinary,” Line said.

“We are all really supportive of each other. If I didn’t have the line or the defense, I wouldn’t be able to perform.” Last weekend, Line tallied up 139 rushing yards on 17 touches and a touchdown against TCU. “I think we are a good team, with great fans,” Line said on the season. “We’ve made some mistakes along the way, but we learn from good teams. Everyone’s doing their job, we make good enough plays to win games.” Line, a Michigan native, joined the Mustangs in January 2009 as a gray shirt. Originally drafted as a linebacker, Line switched to offense as runningback in the spring of 2009. As a freshman, Line started in six games and played in all 13. He scored a total of seven touchdowns

on 49. Line scored two touchdowns against Navy that were the first at SMU by a freshman since 2005. Line finished the season with 189 rushing yards, 10 receptions for 68 yards. This weekend the Mustangs will travel to Houston for a conference game against Rice. “It’s fun to go to somebody else’s house, steal what they want and take it back home,” Line said on the upcoming game. Rice fell to Baylor last weekend and is currently 3-1 on the season. The Mustangs are currently 2-2. “We are looking forward to setting our goal to win the Conference Championship this year,” Line said. The Ponies will return home Oct. 9 to Gerald J. Ford Stadium to play Navy.

Midfielder Arthur Ivo was named C-USA Offensive Player of the Week, after scoring a goal on both Jacksonville and No. 24 UAB. The Mustangs are currently 9-0-0 on the season. Ivo is a junior from Brazil. In 2009 Ivo played in 13 games, scored 1 goal, and made 2 assists.

On Thursday, No. 22 Lesniak won the Singles A competition in the Sooner Fall Tennis Invitational. Lesniak is a junior from Wroclaw, Poland. At the end of her sophomore year she was ranked No. 34. She also was named C-USA Player of the Year in the 2009-2010 season.

New HBO show Story of ‘Fury’ affects author, readers portrays life in the 1920s By LAUREN SMART

the reader to access that was by letting them into her writing process.

After the success of her previous New York Times bestseller, author Koren Zailckas has tackled a challenging subject in her newest memoir, “Fury,” which explores female aggression. The Friends of the SMU Libraries hosted her campus visit yesterday, during which she read portions of the book and shared the personal connection that developed between herself and the topic while writing the book. “This book was originally going to be a collection of short essays on the subject of female anger,” Zailckas said. “But the book changed as I was writing it; it became much more personal.” Anger is a rarely addressed subject in American culture because from a young age, many people are taught that it has no place in any functional, loving relationship. This is one of the major problems that Zailckas faced when writing the book, as she too was the product of an American household. The excerpt that Zailckas read from “Fury” was from the beginning of her writing process when she said she considered herself a sort of “anthropologist observing these angry people.” At an anger clinic in England, which she refers to as S.A.P. (Self Actualization Program), she found herself mocking the methods through which she and the other “angrys” were encouraged to release their rage. It was not until about halfway through her writing that she said she found herself acknowledging her own pent-up anger. “I realized I was writing about the thing that most scared me in my life,” Zailckas said. “We all form simplistic views about life and mine was that anger and love are incompatible.”

“I realized I was writing about the thing that most scared me in my life.” -Koren Zailckas

HBO is on the path to establishing another excellent mafia-based series with its new project “Boardwalk Empire.” Combining the remarkable directing of Martin Scorsese with “The Sopranos” screenwriter and producer Terence Winter, “Boardwalk Empire” sets out to explore the organized crime lifestyle in Atlantic City, N.J., in the 1920s immediately following prohibition. Steve Buscemi plays the smarmy Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, the corrupt city treasurer of Atlantic City who seems to have the whole town in his pocket. His latest venture is dealing alcohol to the public on a grand scale. The series portrays life in the American 1920s by paying close attention to details, such as the impeccably designed costumes and

elaborately constructed sets. Another interesting aspect of the show is that it allows viewers to see the stories of various historical figures who were notoriously associated with the mafia. One of the mobsters featured is a young Al Capone, who is an apprentice to major Chicago crime boss, Lucky Luciano. The writers have created a fresh twist on what one might expect to be another attempt to recycle the hit show “The Sopranos.” They accomplish this by not only interweaving true historical fact with fiction, but by creating a complex web of relationships between each of the characters that keeps viewers coming back for more. “Boardwalk Empire” is positioned to become another “Hall of Fame” series for HBO that is a must see for anyone who appreciates top quality acting, directing and writing.
